How do you view Crosier spirituality? There are three pillars essential to Crosier spirituality: community, prayer, and ministry. Like a three-legged stool that needs to be in balance, Crosier apostolic presence flows out of that dynamic balance of these three pillars, bringing Gospel presence to people.
My ministry: I transferred to Phoenix from Minnesota in 2005. I am currently on the Priory Vocation Team and I serve as an advisor to the director of the Companions of the Holy Cross. I bring Communion to Ridgecrest Healthcare and to other homebound individuals. I also serve as mission preaching coordinator at our national headquarters in Phoenix. I had the privilege of serving with the Crosier Community in Rome from January to September 2011, where I was vicar to the rector and helped in building community. I had to return to Phoenix due to illness, but I am recovering.
